Per Wikipedia:
The Sazerac is a local variation of a cognac or whiskey cocktail originally from New Orleans, named for the Sazerac de Forge et Fils brand of cognac brandy that served as its original main ingredient. The drink is most traditionally a combination of cognac or rye whiskey, absinthe, Peychaud’s Bitters, and sugar, although bourbon whiskey is sometimes substituted for the rye and Herbsaint is sometimes substituted for the absinthe.

Some claim it is the oldest known American cocktail, with origins in pre–Civil War New Orleans, although drink historian David Wondrich is among those who dispute this, and American instances of published usage of the word cocktail to describe a mixture of spirits, bitters, and sugar can be traced to the dawn of the 19th century.

Around 1850, Sewell T. Taylor sold his New Orleans bar, the Merchants Exchange Coffee House, to become an importer of spirits, and he began to import a brand of cognac named Sazerac-de-Forge et Fils. Meanwhile, Aaron Bird assumed proprietorship of the Merchants Exchange and changed its name to Sazerac Coffee House. On October 2, 2019, the Sazerac House opened to the public as a museum and immersive experience that shares the history of the New Orleans cocktail culture, including the Sazerac.

Legend has it that Bird began serving the “Sazerac Cocktail”, made with Sazerac cognac imported by Taylor, and allegedly with bitters being made by the local apothecary, Antoine Amedie Peychaud. The Sazerac Coffee House subsequently changed hands several times, until around 1870 Thomas Handy became its proprietor. It is around this time that the primary ingredient changed from cognac to rye whiskey, due to the phylloxera epidemic in Europe that devastated the vineyards of France.

NJoy Spirits Distillery was founded in 2012 by Natalie and Kevin Goff. They bought 80 acres inside the Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area on which they formed Goff Ranch, home of NJoy Spirits Distillery.

NJoy Spirit’s Distillery is a family-operated Florida Rye Whiskey distiller in the heart of the nature coast. We wanted to make America’s finest 100% Rye Whiskey when we started making our Wild Buck American Rye Whiskey! We are confident we have achieved that (and Wild Buck Whiskey has many awards to prove it!) and have no doubt you’ll agree with just one sip!

Wild Buck Rye Whiskey is smooth, bold, handmade, and bottled at 100 proof. We start by fermenting a mash of 100% farm-fresh rye grain. We grind and cook it daily, one batch at a time. We add no artificial flavorings or color and use only purified ultraviolet filtered rainwater. At NJoy Spirits, we never rush our Rye Whiskey into a bottle. Our Rye Whiskey is aged in custom-made new charred American Oak barrels and developed in the Florida climate. The American Oak barrels give our final product a deep rich flavor with a hint of spice that only grows with time using a smaller barrel – the way Whiskey used to be aged.

Kevin Goff and Natalie Goff started making Wild Buck Rye Whiskey in 2010, and it became available to RNDC in April 2012.

We decided to start distilling Mermaid Rum in 2016 since we added to our property to grow sugarcane. Cane is like grass/bamboo, which grows in most soils. We quickly began racking up many Gold Medal Awards from prestigious groups.

We started the Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine in 2017. As you know, Moonshine is the same thing as Whiskey – just never aged in oak barrels and higher proof, and people asked for it, so that is why we decided to bottle that product.

We wanted to make products that used crops we could grow here on our farm. The type of corn we tried to make Bourbon with wasn’t growable in Florida, so we chose the 401 black rye, which quickly grows here instead. Our soil is very sandy and not rich. We have had to supplement the Florida soil with many tons of compost for years.

We are very proud that our Wild Buck Rye Whiskey, Mermaid Rum, and Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine have become a reality through many years of trial and error! We realize patrons are the key to our success. If the liquor store you frequently visit does not carry them, kindly ask them to call our distributor (See Shop > Where to Buy).

“Tour & Tastings” of all three of our Florida-grown and made “Wild Buck Whiskey,” “Mermaid Rum,” and “Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine” is $8/Adult, but the fee is 100% credited towards our Whiskey, our Rum, or our Moonshine bottle purchase.

Walk around and see where we grow our 100% Rye for our Award-Winning 100-Proof Wild Buck Rye Whiskey, 150-Proof “Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine,” and the Sugar Cane for our Award-Winning 100-Proof Mermaid Rum.

Children are welcome but by law are not allowed in the Tour, Tasting, or Bar areas.

For the safety of all, No Pets are allowed to be brought by visitors onto NJoy Spirits LLC Distillery property. Only Service Animals that comply will all rules set forth on the ADA.gov website and are “Always-on-a-Leash” are allowed on NJoy Spirits LLC Distillery property.
